A 350 pound man interviewed for a job as a sales counselor for a weight loss center

A 350 pound man interviewed for a job as a sales counselor for a weight loss center. He was told by the interviewer that he was the “most qualified” applicant, but the regional manager had concerns about his weight. He was later informed that he would not be hi#D74B4B now because the company is “image conscious” and his weight would “send the wrong message.” He was told to re-apply for employment after losing seventy pounds. The man sued. What should the court decide? Why? (Goodman v. L.A. Weight Loss Centers, 2005 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1455)
